On May 4, 1964, Congress recognized bourbon whiskey as a distinctive product of the United States of America, as it is “unlike any other type of alcoholic beverage.”
To be called bourbon, federal standards require this distilled spirit to be:
Bourbon that meets these requirements and has been aged for a minimum of two years may be called straight bourbon whiskey.
Carefree Bourbon is derived from a masterful blend of 75 percent corn,
21 percent rye, and 4 percent malt. It has been aged over two years, so it is straight bourbon whiskey.
Our new American Oak barrels provide a rich character with hints of spice on the finish.
In Carefree Bourbon’s blending and proofing process, water is hard at work. It has a wonderful mineral composition that’s high in calcium and low in sulfur and iron.
Our water contributes to our bourbon’s final weight, texture, and flavor. This smooth blend results in a very pleasant feel as the caramel and vanilla flavors arrive at the palate.
